Fergie Shocked As Prime Target Hints At U-Turn
Manchester United target David De Gea has hinted his future could lie with Atletico Madrid, scuppering his potential move to Old Trafford.
The 20-year old was widely expected to take over the reign as United’s No.1, after Edwin Van Der Sar retired last season. Sir Alex Ferguson was hoping to tie up the goalie after he returned home from the European Under 21 tournament.
But the £18million rated Spaniard hinted at a Madrid stay, he said.
“I’m just trying to stay focused on this tournament,” he said. “It’s essential that the players think about only this and not things from outside.
“There is a lot of talk about players leaving Atletico. If the press were to be believed, there would only be two or three players left next season. But Atletico have a great team.
“Any player likes to jump, keep learning and improving. That happens in all areas.
Manchester is a great club and it’s a compliment that I am associated with them, but Atletico is also a big one.”
